The rounded spreading and dense shrub or tree typically grows to a height of 1 to 4 metres (3 to 13 ft)[2] and has glabrous and terete branchlets with densely hairy yellow coloured new shoots. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than new leaves. The glabrescent green phyllodes are patent to ascending with a filiform shape that is straight to slightly curved. The phyllodes are 5 to 14 cm (2.0 to 5.5 in) in length and have a diameter of 0.8 to 1.3 mm (0.031 to 0.051 in) and have many closely parallel, fine nerves.[3] It blooms from January to December and produces yellow flowers.[2]

There are two recognised varieties:

Acacia assimilis var. assimilis
Acacia assimilis var. atroviridis


It is native to an area in the Wheatbelt, Great Southern and Goldfields-Esperance regions of Western Australia where it is commonly situated on sandplains, in low-lying areas, among granite outcrops and on rocky hills growing in sandy or loamy-gravelly soils over granite or laterite..[2]
